        For the love of McNuggets.. i say for love of petes sake.. this is more of a deadly, suicidal passion, a 15 year love of McNuggets almost killed her...

        Imagine eating nothing but salt-filled McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets. For 15 years. That’s exactly what Stacey Irvine, a 17-year-old factory worker from England did and it just may kill her. But before you write this story off as just plain crazy, do you know how much salt you’re taking in? And what it’s doing to your health?

        As reported by the Daily Mail, when Stacey Irvine’s mother first took her to a McDonald’s restaurant 15 years ago and bought her some Chicken McNuggets, it was love at first bite. Since then, the British teen has eaten almost nothing but Chicken McNuggets. A diet like this not only lacks vital nutrients, it also serves up a dangerous amount of salt. A 10-piece order of Chicken McNuggets packs in 900 milligrams (mg) of sodium, more than half the sodium you should have in a single day.

        Irvine recently collapsed at work, and was rushed to the hospital struggling to breathe. She’s home now, but the amount of salt she’s been eating means she’ll need to clean up her diet faster than a McDonald’s employee turns around an order at the drive thru window.  All that salt can lead to an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, particularly as she ages.

        The one thing that strikes me is how does a parent allow this, nutrition is a very important part of any childs complete developement..

        Sounds like laziness on the part of the parent(s).  It's ridiculous to allow this to happen from such an early age and for so long.

        Let's hope this "shock" will help get her off them.

        Whats more shocking is a kid at 17 with this kind of health issues. If there is high blood pressure problems or a underlying health conditon seen in us older folks i could see it. Strange thing to happen on a youngster.

        This is insane, those parents don't deserve to be called "parents".

        I can just imagine the effects of a diet of McDonalds. Very scary. Have you every seen that documentary following a healthy fit man that changes his diet to nothing but McDonalds for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  It's called Super Size Me. Needless to say it was dangerous to his health.

        Good grief who would want to eat Mc Donald's every single day  .  It's amazing how many people eat there alot and i think it is the convenience that drives us to it. We need healthier drive-thru's for sure!
